With his father just being murdered by his uncle Claudius and Polonius banning the relationship between him and Ophelia, the only thought running through Hamlet’s mind was anger and revenge. The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions.
Ophelia’s insane tune convinced the King and Queen that she was mad. Simultaneously, Ophelia was thrusting the ground and running around the castle.

Hamlet acts so crazy that he couldn’t remember that he just wanted to kill Hamlet. He acted so crazy that he started blaming everyone else, and almost forgot about his anger towards Claudius. He acted so crazy towards the Queen, Ophelia and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern that he ended up hurting those people’s emotions, which led to Ophelia’s suicide as well.

Nihilism is shown through Hamlet’s state of mind during the play through his feelings, actions and emotions.

Othello is tricked into believing that desdemona has been unfaithful and in the end he kills her. The men in Othello mistrust the women and always quick to associate them with being deceptive and unfaithful. Even in the beginning of the play there are hints of mistrust in women. For an example, when Brabantio discovers that Desdemona married Othello he says, “Fathers, never trust your daughters just because they act obedient and innocent” (1.1.15-17). Brabantio implies that women put on an act and pretend to be trustworthy.
It seems to be that her motivation is her son, as she wishes him and herself safety. However, she doesn’t know the reason of why somebody is out for her husband.

Yet, what is the true definition? The dictionary definition of madness is, “the state of being mentally ill, especially severely,” but Shakespeare demonstrates something different through his play. The audience is thrown into the heart of Denmark, torn by turmoil and suspicion after the late King’s death. Hamlet then embarks on an emotional journey to avenge his father’s murder and restore peace, but at the same time wrecks havoc on his own mind. Unable to cope with his problems, he falls into madness.
39). Iago constantly uses his “innocence” to make Othello jealous and start to assume that it is true. These actions eventually lead to a tragic event. Iago’s manipulation has driven Othello insane, leading to Iago’s plans on his last night.
